Hotel of the Week: Win A Stay At THE PIG-in the South Downs

Set within the small hamlet of Madehurst, this PIG hotel, high up on the South Downs in West Sussex, threw open its doors in September 2021 – complete with its own vineyard. And PIG owner Robin Hutson has done it again, creating a haven of rural bliss for his seventh hotel.

Only four miles from Arundel and a short drive to the yachting playground of Chichester, it’s a brilliant base for exploring – but also great for hunkering down. The 28 lovingly-restored bedrooms are spread out between a higgledy-piggledy collection of traditional brick, flint and timber clad stable yard buildings, together with Field and Garden Wagons.

Each is unique and classically PIG – think indulgent fabrics, reclaimed wood, roll-top baths and locally-stocked larders full of goodies. The wagons, tucked away in the walled garden or in the fields, are super cosy with log burners.

The food, with its 25 mile menu, is, as ever, terrific. It’s simple British food done well with a focus on local and homegrown produce – plus there’s a wide-ranging wine list and large Kitchen Garden.
